Another holiday resort will be added to the comprehensive Movenpick Hotels & Resorts portfolio at the Red Sea beginning in 2010. A management agreement was recently signed with the owning company International Company for Tourism and Hotel Investments for the exclusive Movenpick Resort Abu Soma with 424 rooms and suites.
Abu Soma, with its countless coral reefs, is exceptionally popular among member of the diving community. Just 45 kilometers south of Hurghada and 150 kilometers north of Marsa Alam, Abu Soma is also beloved for its gradually sloping beaches and as an ideal starting point for sea or desert excursions – Luxor is only 200 kilometers away, for example. “We are proud to carry out this unique project in cooperation with Movenpick Hotels & Resorts. The Swiss hotel group enjoys an excellent reputation here and is one of the strongest hotel brands in Egypt,” said Abdul Aziz Al Mawardi, the owner of the project.
The Movenpick Resort Abu Soma is located directly on the shore of the Red Sea and has 424 spaciously laid out rooms and suites. Several swimming pools and water landscapes enrich the vast gardens leading directly to the sandy seaside beach.
With its main restaurant, a specialties restaurant, a fish restaurant and several bars, guests can select from a wide range of culinary offerings. Leisure facilities include a diving center, miniature golf course, tennis courts, and a wellness complex. The younger guests can gather in the Kids Club while conferences and banquets take place in a multi-purpose hall (500 sqm) or five seminar rooms.
“The Movenpick Resort Abu Soma will enrich our portfolio of upscale holiday resorts. We look forward to soon being present at Abu Soma along with El Gouna, El Quseir, Taba, El Sokhna and Sharm El Sheikh. This new property will offer our guests an additional exciting option on the Red Sea,” explained Josef Kufer, Senior Vice President Africa Movenpick Hotels & Resorts.
